Oh, it's that time! As we make our way through the beginning of Q4, strategizing and goal setting plum through January, the excitement for this year's end is stewing! 🍁October 🎃 seems like a great time to start making plans for lovely breaks in the routine. I'm mixing up wax and oil working on the ❄ winter candle collection. ❄ Also, we are currently navigating plan changes due to mechanical trouble with the SUV. Do you feel all mixed up right now, too? Share your mix-ups with me in the comments section.
What's wonderful about 🍁October🍁 is the field trips, day hikes, and Halloween celebrations that mix up our routine a bit! 🎃💀🧙♀️
Homeschooling and running a business means setting a strict routine! The routine consists of a daily schedule paired with habits around morning, evening, and mealtime. It feels so good now that we have great weather, more folks socializing, and group field trips on the horizon! The hikes are good medicine, so long as we can ease right back to our comfortable schedule 😉 Don't worry, all orders ship before we go anywhere!
Does anyone have a favorite winter/holiday candle? You can share with me your favorite on our store page! Each year I make a variation of a Balsam pine candle. Last year Sincerely Candles & Company carried Balsam Boughs. This year I'm feeling like Frosted Balsam will be the ticket! I'll let you all know when I capture this essence to perfection. The Pomegranate Anise will return for 2021! It's my favorite. I'll also bring back the Zabaglione unless you guys suggest something else. This is a warm, eggnog drink that speaks to my Italian heritage. It smells creamy, sweet, spicy. Divine! 😇
Oh, the challenges of running a business have me singing the blues this month! My Explorer, the only transportation for Sincerely Traveling Boutique, needs major maintenance. I'm faced with a tough (ehhem...expensive) decision. When faced with challenge what do I do? I stubbornly push forward thinking there is no possible way my plans could be ruined thinking to myself, "Someone will take me" or "I can borrow such and such's car." When I'm faced with the reality of the fact that even though I try my best, sometimes it will just not work out, I panic, cry, and call my family and friends for help. Thank God I have support! And I am so very grateful for the support I receive. For now, our pop-up market schedule is on hold until further notice. Join our email list to be the first to hear of our next event! 👀
I'd truly like to connect with you guys more personally to hear about your year-end plans, projects, or challenges you face. I believe personal connections and business followers are part of my community. There is Unity in that word. We need each other now more than ever! Feel compelled to connect one-on-one over coffee (in-person or virtual)? Choose a time that works for you here. If you prefer a more public connection, join my Chandler's Corner group on Facebook. Hope to connect with you soon! 🌹
